Abstract: For nearly 40 years, ceramics have been commonly seen to be competitors to the baseline borosilicate glass option for the immobilization of high- and intermediate-level nuclear waste. However, it is now increasingly clear that the wide variety of extant nuclear wastes will ensure that both glasses and ceramics will have very significant roles to play in the immobilization of nuclear wastes and thus confirm one of the criteria of sustainability for nuclear power production. Currently, hot isostatic pressing technology is making a strong impression as a very advantageous processing technique for the consolidation of ceramics and glass–ceramics for nuclear waste immobilization.
